'The Chameleon', 'Oysters' (both 1884), and 'The Culprit' (1885)
This dramatic series is based on sixteen stories drawn from Anton Chekhov's vast body of work. The stories range from early sketches published when he was still a medical student to the masterpieces he wrote in the last decade of his life. The stories are arranged in chronological order and trace Chekhov's development as an artist and as a human being. This series aired nationwide on NPR Playhouse in the early 90s.

I am not a fan of audiobooks but this is more than that. It is great done play where only visual effects are missing. And this is advantage for listener, opportunity for creativity to form mental images of world and characters and enjoy it more:)

Nowhere else on the radio spectrum can you get good entertainment,except, NPR. Every other station plays the same old news, the same old commercials,andm the same old songs some of us have been hearing for 30 or 40 years. No matter what station, or format. Which is why I turn to NPR and Internet Archive. Thank you very much! padge.

Just like listening to NPR...because it is!
Sound effects, music, and voice acting...this is like listening to a play. It's a very nice production.
